In case you wanted to lose yourself on the Internet for a little while, take a moment (okay, several) to scroll through these gorgeous Wire posters designed by New York artist Oliver Munday.

Each poster features an episode-opening epigraph from the award-winning HBO series in graphic, kinetic typography.

And the project is more than a gratuitous design exercise. Revenue from sales of the posters — they’re $35 apiece — will benefit the Baltimore Urban Debate League. (The same organization that sponsored the event where character Namond Brice gave his speech about HIV in Africa in the fifth season.)
